Protegrity's Defiance Security Suite Named Best Database Security Solution

RSA Conference 2009

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/21/09 -- Protegrity Corporation, the leading provider of Data Security Management solutions, is pleased to announce that its Defiance Security Software Suite has won the "2009 Global Product Excellence - Database Security" Customer Trust award from Info Security Products Guide, a popular publication covering security-related products and technologies.

"In an interconnected world threats have no boundaries and security has to remain a prime requirement," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Info Security Products Guide. "We are pleased to honor Defiance Security Software Suite as winner for 2009."

"We are delighted to have won the Database Security Customer Trust award," said Gordon Rapkin, Protegrity's president and CEO. "This reaffirms Protegrity's longstanding commitment to developing solutions that enable organizations to protect their data and their business, comply with industry regulations, and realize a measurable return on their data security investments."

Attacks on critical digital data are sharply on the rise. In mid-March the chief enterprise risk officer for Visa, Ellen Richey, said that common sense dictates that a challenging economy will produce increased data theft activity -- sales of stolen data remains an exceptionally vibrant business despite the downturn. Richey added that "security and law enforcement experts have confirmed that cyber attacks on consumers and businesses have intensified in recent months."

Protegrity's Defiance Security Suite comprehensively supports enterprises in meeting their challenging data security management and compliance requirements, protecting data from collection to disposal. Defiance Security Suite secures data across geographically dispersed, technically diverse systems against new and established threats emanating from outside and inside the enterprise, with minimal impact on existing applications, operations, and processes.

Three core components, all key parts of the integrated solution, comprise the Defiance Security Suite. Defiance Threat Management System is a web application firewall that detects and blocks unwanted activity. Defiance Enterprise Security Administrator delivers alerting, reporting, and auditing for security events organization wide. Defiance Data Protection System provides encryption and hashing for applications, databases, and files.

The architecture of the Defiance Data Protection System (DPS) was designed to comprehensively protect the dynamic dataflow necessary in a modern enterprise. Data is secured through highly granular column-level encryption, masking ensures users see only the information they need to see and all activity is monitored and logged. File Protectors safeguard both structured and unstructured data wherever it may reside; files placed in secured folders and directories are automatically encrypted.

DPS takes full advantage of the processing power offered by the database server, optimizing performance and enabling real scalability -- each database accesses the full processing power of its accompanying server, ensuring that accessibility and performance aren't sacrificed for security reasons. Policies can be centrally managed across the enterprise from one console; separation of duties between security and database administration is enforced. And DPS offers the broadest platform support -- for both databases and operating systems -- in the industry.

Protegrity's focus on centrally managing data security across technology platforms and recognition that protecting data ultimately protects a company's brand and its ongoing business have been key to the company's success, even in challenging economic times. Over the past year the Defiance Security Suite has gained significant usage among large-scale retail outlets and enterprises around the world in all industries, particularly financial, government, manufacturing and education.


Protegrity delivers centralized data security management solutions that protect sensitive information from acquisition to deletion across the enterprise. Protegrity's customers maintain complete protection over their data and business by employing software and solutions specifically designed to encrypt data, safeguard web applications, and manage and report on security policy.
